Up until now depression comix has really focused on the depressed charcaters and not so much on what I call the “satellite” characters, the characters that are part of the lives of those who are depressed. This comic begins a series that focuses on the life of a satellite character and her experiences with a depressed person. I think I’ve already decided to never draw the person whom she refers to so that this series can focus entirely on her.
I’ve been on both sides of this fence, but I have to admit to being more on the other side. I’m sure I’ve put a number of loved ones through hell, and that is why most of them are no longer in my life.
